The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic book that kids of a variety of ages love! If you are looking for ways to keep the fun of story time going after you have closed the beloved Eric Carle book, this is the place to be! I have gathered 15 of the cutest ideas for crafting the Very Hungry Caterpillar with your kids! From toilet paper roll caterpillars to some adorable upcycled straw necklaces that kids will love to make and share. This list has something for kids of all ages and skill levels!
As a mom of 4, I have read this book countless times. When my kids learned to read, this was one of the books we liked to practice reading out loud. Since we have been spending an increased amount of time at home, I have been looking for crafts to keep the kids busy. Finding something that works with such a range of ages can be a challenge! But, I knew pulling out craft ideas centered around a time tested book in our family would engage all the kids, even the older ones who haven’t read the book in a while!
These ideas are awesome, picking just one to make is going to be tough, but with so many fun options, I know you will decide on one of these Hungry Caterpillar crafts!
